Period winners[edit]

Like before, the season was divided into three periods. The first ten matchdays together form the first period, matchdays 11 to 22 form period two and the last 12 form period three. The three period winners take part in the Belgian Second Division Final Round together with the winner of the 2013–14 Belgian Pro League relegation playoff. The winner of this final round gets to play in the 2014–15 Belgian Pro League.

Eupen and Westerlo respectively won the first and second period and qualified for the final round.
